Allow the use of System Variables when setting up a Datamerge

Allow the use of System Variables when setting up a Datamerge

Here is a new feature request based on one of my recent forum discussions. Essentially we would like to have our datamerge setup files located in our custom folder to make automated installations much easier.

I am not 100% sure, but I believe the use of back slashes in the system variables is causing the issue.

Here is the posting I made earlier:

I have a datamerge setup that requires an XSL to structure the result set. Currently the path must be hard coded to something like C:/DataMerge/Transform.xsl for it to work. I would like to keep the XSL file within the custom folder structure in Arbortext - so is ther a way to use a system variable instead? Does anyone know of some tricks?

<TransformerRef name="t1" nameref="XSLTransformer">

<ResourceEventListenerRef name="logger" nameref="DefaultResourceEventListener">
</ResourceEventListenerRef>

<ParameterRef name="p_stylesheet" nameref="stylesheet">

  <Value>C:/DataMerge/Tranform.xsl</Value>  <<-- Currently the only way to make this work
  <Value>%ARBORTEXT_HOME%/custom/datamerge/Tranform.xsl</Value>  <<-- Ideally we would like this to work

</ParameterRef>

Thanks,
